    Hi, I am not networking technical but am technical. I support our Indian school on the reservation. We want to enable the students to work from home. So, here is my question:

    We have a public ip that could display a web page for authentication. How would I set this up?

    1. We would use our existing firewall.
    2. For a demo I would like to use a public hot spot and connect to authentication page and then be inside our network.

    So, how would this work?

    thanks for any help


    Okay, I read colombini’s paper and still have a couple of questions. Sorry, I am not strong on networking.

    I have a server with two nics. ETH00 would be inside connection and ETH1 would be outside connection.

    1. Can I have ETH1 present captive portal to outside world?
    2. Could this be done with virtual server?
    3. If I assign ips to ETH00 and ETH1 how do I login to zeroshell admin page if that number is different than

    Any help would be really appreciated.



    Goodmorning nrandom
    I don’t understand what you have to do…please try to explain..thanks



    I have the AP and captive portal working. However, the problem I am now having is I get a page redirect error when opening up the browser. I am not sure how to fix this.

    Other posts about page redirect suggest changing certain scripts but they do not say how to change the script. So, that is where I am currently.

    thanks for you taking the time to reply




    so when you open your browser you cannot be redirected to requested page?
    I think you have this problem after being authenticaticated in captive portal…is it?

    nice day



    yes, that is it.


    I have never seen this kind of problem…
    have your browser any settings applied such as PROXY SERVER, etc? what browser are you using?



    thanks for the reply cristian. I have AP connected to ETH00 ( and ETH01 to internal lan ( My home school students connect via wifi and are authenticated by Radius server, at least that is the goal.

    I have the captive portal active on ETH00 routed mode.

    When connecting from a XP client I get the captive portal page but then it does not redirect. I get a page that says not found.

    Yes, we have an internet proxy. We are using Firefox. Any suggestions you could provide would be greatly appreciated. I am a teacher so some of this technology is a little difficult for me to configure, but I am trying to learn. We just don’t have the money to hire a tech.

    thanks again
